STEPS TO FOLLOW FOR THIS DIY WELCOME MAT TUTORIAL- COME IN + COZY UP PROJECT:STEP 1: First, I started with a trip to Ikea. I had exactly 20 minutes until I needed to leave for carpool and 2 items on the list. Mission accomplished.
Step 2:With the rug in hand, I pulled up my inspiration picture which is a rug from West Elm. (It's currently available for $29 HERE if you don't feel like making one of your own!)
| | West Elm Version ||Step 3: Using that image as my inspiration, I grabbed some chalk and roughly sketched out the cursive letters. This was mostly to ensure that my spacing was good. I was having some issues with my chalk and actually used a highlighter as well which worked. Basically, you just want to sketch out your letters before you start painting. I forgot to take a pic of this step, but you can kind of see a little pink in this picture below.
